Slide This beautiful African
species has two colour
forms: in the dry season,
the wings are pearly
white but in the wet
season they are
greenish-white with a
violet sheen. The
females lay their tiny
eggs on Chinese Violet (Asystasia gangetica), which seems prone to rust disease in tropical glasshouses but can form invasive ground cover in its natural habitat. The wings of these butterflies soon become worn and damaged, so only a small proportion of those that have died of natural causes yields material that is useful for making jewellery.
Prices: Pendant with Sterling Silver Choker £80.00 Pendant only £45.00 Matching earrings (£30) also available.
